MIUi9 in my Xiaomi still better. Dunno about my Nougat in P2 but it stutters and lags especially in camera mode. Any of you using custom roms for P2 which is clearly superior? I'm still within warranty period b4 I unlock the bootloader.
Not that it really matters but FYI this last update made playstore certified again
lahaa, 23 Nov 2017Then I think I will wait for the next updateNext when?
gto, 23 Nov 2017It's the security or the bug fixes that hold you back?Then I think I will wait for the next update
gto, 23 Nov 2017It's the first thing to do, why don't you know?I'm just asking if there's any issue with the 7.0
I want to know if there is no issue then I update my phone
Hello guys I just got my lenovo p2 and I don't know if I should upgrade to 7.0
Is there any problem with 7.0
Swim Swim, 22 Nov 2017Battery size isnt the only factor, hardware also very important, for example many chinese phon... moreYes, I knew that, just I hadn't elaborated more. :-)
I agree with you, not only the battery size but also the hardware plays an important role. Further, excellent software optimization is pivotal as well, in which case some companies do a better job than the rest.
I also follow HTC U11 comment section and generally its owners are satisfied with its battery life (6-8 hours sot seems to be the norm). And that's with 1440p screen. The Plus version should better that by some margin (8-10 hours), but I'm getting ahead of myself here. Hope GSM Arena will review that one soon.
Back to P2, or Lenovo to be precise, I am curious whether they will eventually follow the trend of longer screen (18:9 aspect ratio), be it Lenovo or Motorola branded phones.
Why not make a P3 with such screen in similarly sized body, just to catch up with where the industry is heading to. Xiaomi is doing it for their midrange Redmi Note 5.
ToonToon, 22 Nov 2017I don't know why people are comparing between Lenovo P2 and OnePlus 5T. OnePlus 5T is a premiu... moreCause the closest jump to a well known flagship from P2 is the OnePlus 5T.
Flagships have an internal memory that support higher reading/writing speeds. Yet, P2 doean't have such memory.
OnePlus, are on the top list of best flagship batteries.
Huawei Mate 10 with 4,000mAh has failed, and got the worst results compared to devices that has less than 3,500mAh. Huawei muat use bigger batteries to keep up with the game, if they could they would put smaller batteries, but their devices wouldn't last 3hrs SoT, and yet they brag about their 4,000mAh, it's just a commercial logo. LG V30 with 3,300mAh had won over S8 plus, Mate 10, OnePlus 5, and others.
At the end, flagships must use smaller battery, so that in 2 years YOU WILL BE FORCED TO UPGRADE. Cause battery life will be reduced.
Mid range phones, have big batteries, but their specs are lower, and in time, you will be forced to upgrade cause of apps support, slow device with time, and no updates. Also, it is easier on the pocket to upgrade to a mid range phone.
Sure, I agree. Everything must be in balance more or less. Thats why I choosed P2. I could not find any other new phone which fitted my requirements as best as P2.
p.s. Mediak chipsek in my eyes = pure cr**, not worth considering.
LLL, 22 Nov 2017Yeah, no proper comparison can be made between midrange and flagship.
I understand some will ... moreBattery size isnt the only factor, hardware also very important, for example many chinese phone with huge battery along with mediatek performs poorly in battery endurance, due how powerhungry mediatek chips are.
Same story with Huawei's chipset, even though they do have big battery in the long run arent much better than 3000 mAh phones.
Also HTC U11+ has 1440p screen, thats gonna kill the battery fast.
Sad/stupid thing that there is 0 so called "flagship" phones out with adequate battery. At least 5000mAh is absolute minimum. Or they should come with user replaceable battery.
Idiotically small batteries is practically only reason I dont even consider buing "flagship" phone.

I understand some will want to upgrade to a flagship device down the road. In that case, let's compare flagships from different brands. I suggest, take a serious look at HTC U11 Plus and Huawei Mate 10, mainly because they have ample battery size.
